About Joe Curley
Avid fisherman, diver, amateur hockey player, husband and dad.
Joe Curley purchased this House in 2011
Why Joe Curley chose Marathon
I fell in love with this home the moment I drove up to it. We only buy vacation homes that meet these 3 criteria: View, boatablility/dock, and comfort. This home has has all 3 in a big way.
What makes this House unique
This is just a very relaxing home with incredible view in a quiet location with the best view you could ask for. Boat, kayak, fish, snorkel or dive right from the patio. Walking distance to two of my favorite restaurant/bars - The Sunset Grille and Lazy Days. Choice to relax by the private pool or run the 7-Mile bridge. It has something for every family members desires.

Great location, 45 min drive to Key West
Property right on the gulf
Thank you for the review.
Great gulf front location with private pool
Loved the location directly on the gulf. Private pool was very relaxing. Duplex itself was comfortable but what makes this place somewhere I would rent again was the view.
The stairs were a little difficult for my senior travel partner to navigate but once she was in the home, everything worked great.
Great recommendations from the host on local places to dine. We had a great meal out every day were there. We never had a reason to contact them during our stay.
It was helpful that we brought our own shampoo and conditioner.
One of the best locations I've stayed in marathon. Right on the ocean with great view of the gulf. On south end of island within walking distance of a few of our favorite bars/restaurants. Would definitely recommend and stsy here again
Thank you for the nice review. Keep in touch on your next trip to the Keys. We have 5 great homes in Marathon. Best regards, Joe
Should be 4.5 rating!
A nice place to vacation. We had 3 couples of older friends who enjoyed sitting and drinking wine to the sunsets. Great views! Well placed for restaurants, beaches, etc. Manager is very helpful and friendly. Gladly recommend it.
We loved it, and we'll be back!!
This was our first stay in this home, and we can't wait to return! Four of the six people in our group had never been to the Keys or rented a vacation home before. They now say they are spoiled for future trips and any future places will have to be as nice as this one!
The owners, Joe and Mary, responded in a timely manner to emailed questions about the house. The renting process was very easy and stress free. The check in/check out process was easy to follow. The property manager, Debbie, was immediately available for the few questions we had while we were in the home.
Outdoors: The gas grill was put to good use nearly every day. We loved eating every meal out on the main floor balcony, looking at the great view/ listening to the water. Even though we didn't bring our boat, the guys loved fishing off of the dock. There is plenty of space for a boat, and the fish cleaning station and the bait freezer got a workout while we were there because the mangrove snapper and tarpon were really biting most of the week. We only took the double kayak out a few times because it was really windy, but it was so nice to not have to bring ours down with us. The small island off to the right is good little jaunt and great for bird watching. We brought extra bikes to go along with the two that were provided so all 6 of us could ride. The pool although on the small side (most are in the Keys) was perfect for sitting and chatting with friends. We had a lot of wildlife visiting us, too. A large iguana, a huge land crab, fish, baby sharks (caught and released at night), a manatee swimming by, and lots of birds. I rode my bike to the grocery and fish market! Did I mention the VIEW..and the stars at night..and the breezes?!
Inside: The house is well stocked and very functional. The downstairs entry is great for storing all of your gear that doesn't need to go upstairs, like fishing gear, bikes, extra water, etc. There is ample closet space throughout. The washer and dryer are nice to have. The main living area is smallish, but we were rarely in the house. The bedrooms were all a nice size and the whole house is tastefully decorated. The pictures online are up-to-date, so no arriving and seeing 30 year old furniture.It is a nice layout with basically two master suites on the top floor and a full bath and bedroom on the main living floor. Florida is hot and the A/C in this place is great when you want/need to be inside. Great TV.
THANK YOU!! WE'LL BE BACK!!
